1.7 is not a new smartphone.
It’s the average birth rate in Europe.
In 1.7, the Hungarian artist Zsuzsa Rózsavölgyi explores the female body and its role in society in a very humorous and provocative way.
What effect do advertising, media, traditions and pure nonsense have?
With a personal approach and healthy disregard for taboos, Rózsavölgyi slips into various roles of the modern woman and demonstrates what it means to live in a female body and to communicate with a female body today.
Should women place their bodies in the service of society in order to increase the birth rate – or is this problem more easily solved with immigration?
This performance features nudity and addresses issues which some audience members may find distressing, including abortion.
This performance has been brought to the UK with support from Leeds Dance Partnership.Back to all eventsBack to Encounters Festivals
